November 30th - God is within her, she will not fall. Psalm 46:5
Perhaps like me, you’ve tried for years to give a certain issue over to God. A habit, attitude, or addiction. Or an area of fear and doubt. “I’ll be different, Lord,” you’ve promised as you surrendered it to Him. And for a while you are. But just when you think you’ve finally gained victory over that issue, there it is again—back in your hand. Somehow you’ve picked up the habit or situation once more, and you wonder if you were ever truly free. Which is exactly what Satan wants you to think… keep reading here.
You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.
Intimacy with God—to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted. For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver’s beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and “Going Deeper” sidebars are also woven throughout.
An invitation for every woman who’s ever felt she isn’t godly enough, isn’t loving enough, isn’t doing enough.
Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is a reminder to women today that they’re not much different from those in the Jesus’ time. Drawing on the Biblical story of Mary of Bethany and her sister Martha, Weaver suggests that the troubles of balancing spending time with God and meeting the high-demands of a busy life is an age-old problem. Offering fresh Bible study, lively anecdotes, meaningful illustrations, and creative, practical strategies, readers will learn to first spend quality time with God, then—after being filled—to reach out in humility, sacrificial service, and love.

The final installment in Joanna Weaver’s Mary Martha Trilogy…the story of Lazarus!

In this life-giving book, Joanna Weaver shows you how to embrace the truth that Jesus loves you apart from anything you accomplish, apart from anything you bring. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unbound from the grave clothes of fear, regret, and self-condemnation. Love is calling your name.
Believing the truth that Jesus could love us apart from what we bring or what we do is unthinkable for many of us. Most Christians have the head knowledge that they are accepted in the Beloved, but for many, that incredible Good News hasn’t quite reached their hearts. In her new book, Lazarus Awakening, the final book in her Mary-Martha trilogy, Joanna Weaver brings an irresistible invitation for us to boldy live in the full confidence of God’s unconditional love.
